Chart Notes:

  • With her second #1 single on my personal chart, Miley Cyrus rises from 3-1 with “Midnight Sky”. She previously led for two weeks last year with “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart”, a collaboration with Mark Ronson. A pair of hits tie for the Biggest Mover in the countdown this week: Dua Lipa‘s “Levitating” (30-18) and Shawn Mendes‘s “Wonder” (36-24) rise 12 spots and might reach the top ten by early next month. The couple of JP Saxe and Julia Michaels spent two weeks at #1 earlier this year with “If The World Was Ending”, but it just so happens that the two artists debut with their own separate releases in the same week: the former at #38 with “A Little Bit Yours” and the latter at #39 with “Lie Like This”. Will they eventually land back-to-back at the top of the chart? Stay tuned.

Chart Notes:

  • Singer Ava Max spends a third week at #1 on my personal chart with her big hit “Kings & Queens”, as Miley Cyrus edges closer to the top spot with a 5-3 leap for “Midnight Sky”. There are a number of notable climbers within the countdown this week: the Biggest Mover title belongs to Dua Lipa with “Levitating”, which rises from 39-30 in its second week on the chart. Three new songs land in the top 40 this week, two of which are by performers who have peaked at #1 on my chart with several tracks: Shawn Mendes with “Wonder” and Bastille with “Survivin'”, debuting at #36 and #39, respectively. Mendes is looking for his fourth chart-topper, while Bastille is looking for their sixth. Meanwhile, Why Don’t We is looking to break into the top 20 once again with “Fallin'”, which bows at #40.

Just ahead of a new remix featuring rapper DaBaby, this week’s higher of two debuts is Dua Lipa‘s “Levitating” at #39. Coming in one spot lower is Harry Styles with “Golden”. The #40 entry has not been officially confirmed as a radio single yet, but it’s earning some good airplay in several U.S. markets.

Chart Notes:

  • Dua Lipa‘s “Hallucinate” remains at #1 for the third week on my personal chart, which is also looking like its final frame at the top. Though the top gainers are still on the slower side this week, there are two debuts in the top 40: “Year Of The Young” is the fourth top 40 entry for Smith & Thell at #38, while “Water” earns Ryland James his first top 40 song at #39.
